This cottage has everything you need for a great stay in the lake district. The facilities are excellent (the kettle being the exception - this should be replaced immediately). Plenty of space in the property with an excellent lounge upstairs.
We got here early and the cleaners were just finishing the turnaround service. Not impressed by that service at all, we immediately went to the shops in Grange over sands to collect some cleaning fluids, sponges and wipes and set about cleaning everything from the floors to the fridge, dishwasher, surfaces and bathrooms We had to empty the over full vacuum and start again. The floor mop was dry and had not been used in anger for many weeks.. (these are the basics for a cleaning company), no pride in their work !!.
Once cleaned to our standards we could relax for the rest of the week and enjoy the property as it should be.The garden furniture is a let down and could do with some maintenance but we enjoyed the views and very friendly neighbours.
This is a great location for walks, horse racing at Carmel races, fishing the rivers, lake cruises and many historical literary attractions.
Fire and smoke alarms have been removed, these should be replaced.
All in all we have enjoyed our stay here, we would return if the cleaning improves..
